Trapylen® 196 X is a low-chlorinated liquid polypropylene, presenting as a slightly yellowish, higher-viscous liquid. It exhibits generally excellent adhesion to polypropylene, PP-modified thermoplastic rubbers, and, with certain limitations, to polyethylene. The primary application of Trapylen® 196 X is as a primer in surface treatment and as an adhesion promoter for adhesives in the processing of polyolefins. This includes various processes such as painting, printing, bonding, and laminating, among others.
